    Hilary Davidson has quite rightly received no shortage of acclai

    Hilary Davidson has quite rightly received no shortage of acclaim from fans, critics, and award judges for her Lily Moore novels. But few who've delved into the Hitchcockian delights of her long-form fiction are aware she's one of the finest short story writers of her generation.

    The nine tales included in this collection, while never gratuitous, are not for the faint of heart. Ms. Davidson doesn't hold back when it comes to peeling away the thin veneer of niceties that mask our species' baser instincts. Read this book with the lights on, but good god read it. I guarantee you it'll prove worth your while, even if it's certain to cause you to look askance at your fellow man...
